WSC All-Stars: Thornton Lee 1941
Thornton relieved St. Louis Browns outfielder Roy Cullenbine, who pinch hit for Cleveland Indians starter Bob Feller in the bottom of the third inning, to start the fourth. He ran into a little trouble in the top of the sixth inning, when Cincinnati Reds pitcher Bucky Walters hit a double and St. Louis Cardinals center fielder Terry Moore's flyball to deep left field scored him.
Lee had one at-bat in the bottom of the fifth inning off Cincinnati's Bucky Walters, where he lined out to Brooklyn Dodgers center fielder Pete Reiser in left center, but moved Detroit Tigers first baseman Rudy York to third base.
